- Ditch the power pose – You don’t want the first meeting to be all about you, demonstrate that you’re the one who is honoured by the introduction, nod your head towards them slightly, keep eye contact and keep your shoulders soft and open, not harsh and square.
- Leave a lasting impression – Within the first 7 seconds of meeting someone, they automatically decide whether or not they like you. Daunting, we know! By having a firm handshake, opening shoulders and of course, a smile, your first impression will be a positive one!
Marina Simioli, founder and Director of Ladies 4 Networking, a company that has offered informal, non-membership women’s networking since 2009 and Judith Wright from Wright Angle Marketing (WAM), a marketing agency that works with both national and international businesses, have created a new company together, L4N UK Ltd.
The new company will not only build on the solid foundations Ladies 4 Networking has established over the last six years, but will also develop a network of meetings across the UK. Since the official L4N UK launch, the dynamic duo already have thirteen new women who are interested in setting up L4N UK Ltd meetings in their local area. These women hail from as far afield as Scotland and Surrey.
